Sophistication of legal techniques has reached a level when almost any, even most complex arrangement to finance a business or an asset could be packaged into a 'product'. LEMAN is proud to have access to the best legal expertise available for developing financial products enabling investment where conventional funding strategies would not work.
LEMAN has a niche expertise in securitizing distressed assets, creating synthetic products enabling investment into assets with income stream in currencies with no exchange traded currency hedges etc.
The 2008 financial meltdown attached a bad stigma to complex financial products, and much of that sentiment does have basis. Our view at the synthetic / complex products business, however, is that – in the rights hands – it is a wonderful tool to introduce investment into assets which would otherwise not receive capital. We believe to be the 'right hands' in this business.
